Unions’ Open Letter To The Riders of Long Island Rail Road

Unions’ Open Letter To The Riders of Long Island Rail Road

We deeply regret that MTA’s irresponsible actions will cause a strike beginning this weekend.

The unions representing Long Island workers have done all in our power to reach a reasonable settlement in four years of bargaining.

We have accepted the compromise recommendations of two Presidential Emergency Boards, comprised of six renowned arbitrators, including the selection of our last best offer as the “most reasonable”.

We have offered to delay the strike for sixty days or less.
